One of the best and most innovative features inside of your new Ford truck, car, or SUV is its capability of remembering your personal settings!
We all know how annoying it can be when you let someone else drive your vehicle. You get in, and everything is out of whack. The seat is different, the mirrors are out of the perfect place it took you forever to find, the accelerator and brake pedal are too close, and don’t let us even get started on the lumbar support! Thankfully, because of the memory seats inside of Ford vehicles, you can always revert back to your favourite settings after someone else has taken your Ford for a ride.
Setting Up Your Ford Memory Seats
Once you’ve got your seat, mirrors, telescopic steering column, and power pedals in the proper place, turn the key to put the ignition in the “On” position. Once you’ve got the power on, you’ll notice three buttons on the side panel of the driver’s side door. Press and hold the number 1 button for about five seconds until you hear a single chime. After the chime sounds, let go of the button and your seat settings have been saved! To test it out, simply move something a hair and press the button to watch it go back to your set position.
Setting Up Ford Key Fob Memory
For those times when you want your seat to be ready for you before you get inside your Ford vehicle, the key fob that you received with your vehicle can activate the memory seats for you! To sync your key fob with your memory seats, do everything we talked about earlier, except this time keep holding the appropriate memory button until you hear the chime twice. As soon as you hear the second chime, press the lock button on your key fob immediately. Now, every time you press the unlock button, your seat will automatically adjust to your preferred settings. This is especially helpful if you make use out of the easy entry and easy exit feature which moves the steering wheel and seat each time you get in and get out of your Ford.
